With the 96th Pick of the 2009 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers Select Keenan Lewis, CB, Oregon State

And just like that, the Pittsburgh Steelers have had themselves one hell of a busy morning, filling potentially three pronounced areas of need - OL, WR/KR, CB. The latest selection, the final pick in the 3rd Round before the compensatory selections are made, is Oregon State CB Kennan Lewis.

Lewis was a 4-year starter and a 3-time All-Academic Pac 10 selection. Noticing a theme here? Yup, Colbert, Tomlin & Co. want pieces that are going to go about things the right way. Good stuff.

Lewis is pretty bulky and big, standing at 6'0" and 208 pounds. Might he eventually be a safety?  Perhaps. His size will compliment William Gay's more diminutive stature at some point hopefully. And before I forget, Lewis will definitely have a chance to earn his keep as a head hunter on special teams.
